Pete killed Tom Petty

Occasionally our hosts or their guests will make wild guesses that by some astronomical chance turn out to be correct.
The most famous of these is that Han Solo would die in Episode VII by falling off a bridge (although technically it was probably the lightsaber stuck in his middle that killed him). This page is named after the time that the hosts were talking about celebrity deaths (coincidentally this conversation occurred while they were discussing their Han Solo prediction), and Pete threw out Tom Petty as someone who it would surprise him to learn had died. Although he said it offhand, right around when the episode aired he actually did pass away. Coincidence?? Yeah probably. But still!
